Flee and Be Free

Spread, originally uploaded by Sola Lumina Captura.

O that you would flee to Christ at once! You have heard this gospel now for months - O that you would see majesty and mercy! For He satisfies those who are hungry and thirsty - The promises of tomorrow are so uncertain! It won’t be long when death draws the curtain - Lord, grant them faith that they may believe! And repentance of worldly pleasures - certainly to leave - The sinner’s bounty is the beauty of the blessed King, So let us glory in his grace and let His praises ring! To taste and savor the grace of a Substitute, a Savior; Oh, for your good pleasure, may You be their Treasure! Yesterday morning, on the way home from work, these thoughts were heavy on my mind. Being at UPS, I am blessed with the opportunity to build relationships with many who do not know Jesus Christ. In the last couple of weeks, renewed interest and questions have been aroused in the minds of some of my co-workers, and we have had some great conversations about the excellencies of Christ. One considers himself an athiest, another New Age, and yet two others Roman Catholic. Just earlier this morning, one asked me, "Is the end soon?" We conversed a while between boxes of course, and had to abruptly end our conversation with her last question being, "What, then, constitutues becoming a Christian?" It has been a true joy to work side-by-side with these co-workers and pray that they will, by God's free grace, be awakened to new life in the Son. O flee, dear friends, flee and be free!
